The Bollywood actor said he hopes filmmakers return here like the good old times. 'There was a time when almost all the movies of Bollywood were shot in the Valley. I hope that time has come and I wish more and more filmmakers start visiting Kashmir to shoot their movies. Last time I came here was to shoot MANN (1999). Kashmir is really a paradise and there is no need to visit any other place when you visit Kashmir,' Aamir further adds.

Some parts of his blockbuster movie 3 IDIOTS were shot in Ladakh region in Jammu and Kashmir. However, Aamir said that he felt sorry for not visiting Kashmir valley when he was shooting for the movie 3 IDIOTS in Ladakh. 'We went directly to Leh to shoot 3 IDIOTS and I did not get an opportunity to visit the valley that time,' said the 46 year-old actor.

Sources said that Aamir had shot an ad film for 'Incredible India' in Kashmir though he did not divulge any information about it.
